The LEICA X2 is the best compact camera ever.

The photo quality rivals and, in some instances, exceeds that of my DSLRs.

UPDATE 12/11/2012:
It's now six months since I got the X2 and I'm still *loving* it! The photo quality rivals and, in some instances, exceeds that of my DSLRs. The vibrant color and sharpness of the images right out of the camera is uncanny. The RAW files just have a ton of dynamic range!
This has become my "walking around" camera and I always slip it in a coat pocket if I'm going out. This has also been a real winner on family trips and vacations - lugging a Canon 5D mkII and lenses across the Pacific was problematic due to its bulk and weight so it was a great relief to just take the X2 the second time around!

ORIGINAL REVIEW 6/25/2012:
The Leica X2 is a singular camera that fits a unique niche in the market. If you are a photographer looking for a fun, stylish and more portable alternative to lugging your DSLR around, without compromising optical quality, the X2 is the ticket. The superb optics of a fixed 35mm equivalent Leica lens combined with a large, high resolution sensor make this small camera hard to resist!

The quality of the photos I've captured with this little box is absolutely wonderful, especially when shot in RAW mode. The inclusion of the full version of Adobe's wonderful Lightroom software helps make this camera a compelling purchase and takes a bit of the sting out of the high sticker price. After shooting for a week with the X2, I noticed something really uncanny! Normally my shots require some modicum of post processing - color adjustment and sharpening at a bare minimum. But, other than conversion to JPG and sizing, the images are for the most part just perfect exactly as shot! The X2 is an astounding camera in this regard!

The lens is wonderfully sharp, even when shot wide open.

A lot of negative reviews on the X2 are based on the fact that the X2 is overpriced, lack of zoom, video, and many popular features available in lower end cameras. Truth is, you pay $2k for the image quality produced by this Leica lens/processor combo. This is a minimalist camera for taking excellent quality still pictures. One can certainly spend half the money on the excellent Fuji X100 with a lot more consumer driven features, but from a pure image quality standpoint, the X2 is better than the X100. This is based on personal experience shooting both X2 and X100. The RAW file from X2 gives a lot of details. Would I have wanted the X2 to cost less? You bet! Is it worth $2k? Yes to me but no to many. I just hope reviews are based on user experience and not on price.

Couldn't decide between the Leica X2 and the Fuji X100 so I ordered both :)

Bit of background - I've been shooting with D-SLRs since the Nikon D70. My current body is a D300 with the 70-200VR, 17-55DX and 12-24DX. When city touring, lugging all that gear is cumbersome not only when shooting but when traveling: getting it through security, worried about leaving it in your hotel room, etc. These new micro bodies with high quality sensors are right in my wheelhouse.

My girlfriend took the X100 and I took the Leica X2 out for an afternoon of shooting around San Francisco. At the end of the day, we got back and she conducted a blind test (yes, she is amazing :) and more often than not I preferred the look of the Fuji and for the shots with Velvia enabled, even more so.

Observations from a day of shooting:
- I'm unsure why I've read some call this "pocketable" because unless you're wearing cargo shorts, no way.
- The lack of integrated viewfinder turned out to be a dealbreaker for me, an SLR shooter at heart. No matter how hard I tried to convince myself it would be OK to shoot with the LCD back, I kept banging my nose into the back of the camera when I raised it to my eye to peek through a viewfinder that didn't exist. I realize the Oly VF is the same (and half the price) of the Leica VF. Still it's an extra $200+ and for me really buzzkills the sleek design of the Leica.
- Compared with the features of the X100's LCD while shooting, felt left out in the wind. The engineers at Leica couldn't think of anything useful to do with the LCD during live view?

I desperately wanted the Leica to be my favourite.

A Rolex doesn't tell time any better than a cheap watch.....a Ferrari doesn't carry the kids to school very well, and a leica doesn't take pictures better than a lot of other cameras. If you don't want to pay the price, then buy a cheaper camera. No one is forcing you to spend the bucks for German quality; just like no one forces you to buy a Rolex.

Me, I love the images, the simplicity, the build quality, the simplicity, the resale balue

I've owned too many digicams to count since the 90's. Many will point out that the X1 or X2 lags in technology features. I agree many other cameras over the past few years have more bells + whistles but IMO those features hinder my picture taking.

SIMPLICITY EXAMPLE; my wife had a Panasonic P&S and I had the older Leica C-Lux 3 P&S (which were sister cameras). The Panny had 'a lot' of features but while in the moment I always had trouble remember where the settings were at on her camera to get the shot while the Leica had less buttons and options. Think = turn on, zoom, compose take the picture with the Leica while the Panny was = Turn on, zoom, compose (then get distracted with 'maybe I should change a setting before taking the shot' and if I decided to then I normally missed the shot. Needless to say it got tiresome trying to figure out why one option wouldnt work or where to find it in the pages of menus if another conflicting option was set (again another lost shot)

CONTROL EXAMPLE; I have 2 Sony's an RX-100 and a Nex7. Both of the these camera's have so many features they seem more like a computer that happens to have a camera on them whereas I was just looking for a camera that I could easilly set the most common controls and take over manually as needed which is where the X2 fit perfectly.

QUALITY EXAMPLE; Don't get me started on 'Leica Look' flame wars as I've owned more non-Leica digicams than actual Leica's. Blind viewing with my family and friends of the same shot nearly 95% of the time folks would choose the Leica shot over the RX-100 or Nex7. Leica Look is kinda hard to explain; it's somewhere between the tonal curve, color balance and gradations (especially in BW) not to mention the sweet bokeh their lenses produce.
